Celebrate Today

Hey, hey!  How is it Wednesday already?  I don't know, but i'll take it, because it is one step closer to Friday!  For today I have a little card I made using the newest ColourQ palette.  Oh my, do I love these colors together.


I started by taking a strip of white card stock and a nestie and creating my own decorative edge.  I then ran it through with a woodgrain impression plate and adhered that to a white card base.


Using Hero Arts Latte Chalk ink, I stamped the flowers from Flower Fusion #5, along with the leaves and cut them out.  I adhered the cut out leaves to the flowers and then attached color coordinating buttons.


Lastly, I took Think Big Favorites #4 and selectively inked up each word and stamped them to fit.


Here is a look at the fabulous inspirational picture:


Well, I hope you have enjoyed today's card!  Have a fabulously crafty day!
